Parkers overall rating: 3 out of 5 3.0

Plenty of space for the driver, because of the MPV-like proportion. Driving position is highly adjustable and comfortable. The seats are firm, supportive and good for long-distance trips. Pedals are best suited to those with smaller feet and the clutch has a long pedal travel. All the buttons and switches are in easy-reach positions, although some of the switchgear isn’t up to the price of the car.

The two extra seats are 307 SW’s selling point. But only the smallest children will be able to use them for any length of time. However, there’s plenty of legroom for everyone else and shoulder room is pretty good, too. Seats offer support, but aren’t as comfy as some rivals. Large panoramic glass roof makes for airy and light interior.
